Its fashonable these days to have a “mental health problem”. Too many claim benefits for minor illnesses, when years ago in the 1940’s us british had the stiff upper lip.
Severe mental illnesess like schizophrenia have taken a back seat - in favour of the snowflakes that claim depression cos they are to lazy too get out of bed at 8am to goto work.
Notice the excuse of depression and anxiety a lot here in the States. Not saying they’re not real, but used as an excuse to get benefits and missing work.
‘Work is the curse of the drinking classes’ - old proverb. Lol
Real severe Major Depressive Disorder is serious stuff, but yeah you are right too many people here in the states claim to have depression.
It’s become fashionable.
Someone I know that is connected to my brother without mentioning names, claimed to have some mania the other week.
She doesn’t have bipolar.
She thinks it’s fashionable.
I resent this.
It’s annoying when normal people use MI diagnosis’ to describe a feeling. Like someone is being so schizo, ocd. Or diagnose themselves to express to their friends their behavior. They sound ignorant.
